I'm mulling drilling options and I'm trying not to overlap anything else in my bag. Can someone compare this ball to something current? Thanks.

Thanks. I didn't realize that core became an earlier Visionary core.

You're the first person to respond either here on the Miscellaneous forum to the question, but the time came for me to drill it before I got an answer, so I already had settled on a pattern before I read this post. Pin is a little high above the ring, CG is kicked out to positive side a little. Works out to around a 4.75 x 3.25 drill for me.

I threw it a few times in warmups last week. It's definitely milder than newer gear. Looks like it's going to be a dry to dry-medium ball for me. I haven't thrown it enough to give it an honest review.
